Q: What types of fabrication services do you offer?

A: KSC fabricates Aluminum Composite Material for building façade panels, custom unitized parking screens and Phenolic (HPL) material for building facades.

Q: What are the benefits of Design Assist?

A: Design Assist benefits our clients by providing KSC engineers and designers an opportunity to evaluate a project early in the construction process.

This allows our team the time they need to create efficient designs and make appropriate material recommendations.

We have found that this strategy often results in time and cost savings for our clients, without sacrificing building aesthetics.

Q: How can I get the most from my fabrication project?

A: As a fabricator and installer of custom building facades, KSC typically works for a general contractor (GC) who manages the construction process.

Once a client hires an architect to complete the design phase of a project, the general contractor receives documents that outline the scope of work.

The GC then hires KSC to fabricate and install the selected material. Adhering to the project guidelines and maintaining open communication between the client and the contractor will help ensure successful completion of the project.

Occasionally, KSC will fabricate and furnish only ACM building panels. Material requirements are provided by the client and KSC will fabricate the required panels.

Q: What are KSC “Systems”?

• A: The KSC 2100 is a ventilated rainscreen system used primarily with aluminum composite material. It is a fully engineered system that looks clean and crisp, providing a defined recessed sightline between panels.
• B: KSC 1200 is a wet seal system that uses backer rod and sealant assembly at the panel joints to create a barrier system to keep the weather out.
• C: KSC 3000 is a modified version of our KSC 2100 screening system that is designed for specific applications.
• D: KSC 4000 aluminum plate system is a tested pressure equalized rainscreen system that utilizes a simple interlocking method between panels to allow for installation on a wide variety of substrates.
